LANSING, Mich. – The Battle Creek Air National Guard base has been chosen as one of four locations for a new Cyber Operations Squadron.

The announcement was made by Governor Rick Snyder Wednesday.  The squadron is part of the U.S. Department of Defense and will help detect and protect the country against cybersecurity threats.

According to the governor, Michigan was chosen because of pre-existing work training military members and civilians in defense against cyber breaches.

The cyber operations squadron is assigned to the 110th Attack Wing in Battle Creek and will bring another 70 jobs to the base.

Michigan’s National Guard already has a Cyber Range Hub, which opened in 2014.  The Michigan Cyber Range launched in 2012 and allows for reenactment exercises and simulations across the state.
